The theatre is also cooperating with the Vietnam Circus Federation tostage the Oriental Magic Gala featuring traditional music, cheo and 10magic performances.

In addition, a number of private comedy groups in the capital are also staging their own shows to entertain children.

As is the case in Hanoi, several theatres in HCM City have been busy preparing new plays for children.

Ngan Le Hai Dem will be staged beginning on May 31 at the Hoang ThaiThanh Drama Theatre at 36 Le Quy Don Street in District 3.

While theatres in big cities are busy this summer, they cannot sendtheir actors to the countryside for performances due to a lack of funds.

Nguyen Thuy Mui, director of the Viet Nam CheoTheatre said the theatre could not finance performances in rural areaswithout more financial support from local authorities. This year, thetheatre could only sign a contract with Thanh Tri district in Hanoi,where they will stage an old comedy on May 29.

The puppetry theatres also face financial difficulties that prevent them from performing in rural areas.-VNA
